1 In that day athe Lord will punish bLeviathan the fleeing serpent, With His fierce and great and mighty sword, Even Leviathan the twisted serpent; And cHe will kill the dragon who lives in the sea. 2 In that day, "A avineyard of wine, sing of it! 3 "I, the Lord, am its keeper; aI water it every moment. So that no one will damage it, I bguard it night and day. 4 "I have no wrath. Should someone give Me abriars and thorns in battle, Then I would step on them, bI would burn them completely. 5 "Or let him arely on My protection, Let him make peace with Me, Let him bmake peace with Me." 6 In the days to come Jacob awill take root, Israel will bblossom and sprout, And they will fill the whole world with cfruit. 7 Like the striking of Him who has struck them, has aHe struck them? Or like the slaughter of His slain, have they been slain? 8 You contended with them by banishing them, by adriving them away. With His fierce wind He has expelled them on the day of the beast wind. 9 Therefore through this Jacob's iniquity will be aforgiven; And this will be the full price of the bpardoning of his sin: When he makes all the caltar stones like pulverized chalk stones; When Asherim and incense altars will not stand. 10 For the fortified city is aisolated, A homestead forlorn and forsaken like the desert; bThere the calf will graze, And there it will lie down and feed on its branches. 11 When its alimbs are dry, they are broken off; Women come and make a fire with them, For they are not a people of bdiscernment, Therefore ctheir Maker dwill not have compassion on them. And their Creator will not be gracious to them. 12 In that day the Lord awill start His threshing from the flowing stream of the bEuphrates to the brook of Egypt, and you will be cgathered up one by one, O sons of Israel. 13 It will come about also in that day that a great atrumpet will be blown, and those who were perishing in the land of bAssyria and who were scattered in the land of Egypt will come and cworship the Lord in the holy mountain at Jerusalem.
